I decided to go for it and expand my photography. I was thinking about what it was that felt so overwhelming about the wedding we did and why I wouldn't want to do it professionally and realized it was just the stress of the wedding. Well, weddings are NOT the only thing you can take photos of, right? I thought about my petsitting business and how much I enjoy taking pictures of animals, so I thought I would make that a large part of my business. I don't want it to be ALL pets, however, so I added the portraits as well. So, for HOURS I have been trying to figure out photoshop and how to make a watermark. I spent way too long trying to work with layers and then finally found a good explanation of how to do it correctly and finally got it! Shew! PS really frustrates me. So, that was really long-winded, but you get a shot of what I've been working on today.

I realized today that I've learned a great deal about editing that can enhance my photos, and I still have a lot to learn as well. This shot was gorgeous to begin with, I loved that the sun was pink, but there were houses in the way and the color wasn't as vivid as it really looked to my eye, so I did some editing. It will be interesting in 6 months or a year to see how much more I have learned about editing!
Karen and I discussed it and we agreed that we started the 365 project and this blog because we wanted to improve our pictures. It seems counterproductive to rush around trying to take a picture just to say you took one everyday when the day before you have dozens (or even hundreds) of great pictures to choose from. We also both want to improve our editing skills. So, instead of forcing ourselves to take more pictures when we have editing that needs to be finished we're going to focus on posting a picture each day that we have worked on in some form- either shooting OR editing. Sorry if that doesn't seem to live up to the original intention but it's what works for us and our photography goals right now.
